Want It Wednesday-Not Books

More Want It Wednesday, only this time it's not books! Sometimes in my blog travels, I come across items that aren't books, but I still love and wish I had. These are various things that I've found while reading blogs that I now want for myself.



Ok, seriously, how cute are these shoes??? I saw them on Meg Cabot's website last week and I have been lusting after them ever since! If only I had a good place to wear them. As cute as they would look at my school visits for summer reading, I'm afraid I'd end up tripping over myself. (Which surely would entertain the teens!) I just had to share with everyone, because they deserve to be shared.



This Twilight thing has gotten so out of control, there's now Twilight perfume! I guess that's what happens when you can't think of anything else to market the movie. Yes, Harry Potter has Chocolate Frogs and Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, but at least those were in the books. The perfume-not so much. But I must admit, as silly as I think it is, it's in a pretty cute bottle. I just hope it smells good, or my library will be full of funky smelling teens!







Thanks to Lauren at Shooting Stars Mag for blogging about this today. I too am offically in love with this coin purse. How cute is this thing?? You can find them in all sorts of colors too, which is so much fun.

  5. Meg's shoes are adorable--gotta love Betsey Johnson--her designs are so cute and fun! And the Twilight perfume...oh my god. They've gone way too far on merchandising. Next they'll be selling TWILIGHT underwear....and toothpaste....and chips and apple-shapes...LOL

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?

Tween Tuesday: Drizzle by Kathleen Van Cleve

Rating: 2.5/5 Stars Genre: Magical Realism Release Date: 3/4/2010 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Polly Peabody lives on a magical farm. They grow chocolate rhubarb, it rains every Monday at exactly 1:00, and her best friend is a plant named Harry. When the rain stops, Polly's brother falls ill, and her aunt wants to sell the farm, Polly must figure out a way to save her beloved home. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Drizzle is on our state book list and one of our Chat & Chew book club picks. The kids reviews were mixed on this one and sadly, it was my least favorite of all the books we read for Chat & Chew. The kids that liked it said it had action, but for me the plot was slow and dragged too much. The book could have been edited down and I lost interest in the story. I liked the magical farm that Polly lived on, but the magic wasn't enough to hold my interest. I felt like the plot went around in circles too much and never got going. The ending was also a bit
